UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Bottle big thanks to Thomas. It pours hazy golden amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, woody, white wine, wood, damp leaf, orange muffin, light vinegar and mild spice. The taste is tart, woody, vinous, damp leaf, wood, must, some acidity, fruit cake, gooseberry, sponge cake and light metallic notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice depth, but a touch musty and acidic. Not sure how much I could drink of this, but it’s nice in small measures.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 750ml bottle. 2013 batch. Slow gusher. Pours out eventually a slightly murky orange/brown shade. Big sticky head with chunks of lacing. Instant bretty, farmhouse aroma, with fruity apple and grape skin notes. Plenty of all that on the tongue as well. Starts off a little sweet but then turns dry and oaky. Quite a creamy feel to the palate. Nothing out of this world but certainly a wonderfully crafted rustic beer.
